COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Samuel Adams Boston Lager® is the best example of the fundamental characteristics of a great beer, offering a full, rich flavor that is both balanced and complex. It is brewed using a decoction mash, a time consuming, traditional four vessel brewing process discarded by many contemporary brewers. This process brings forth a rich sweetness from the malt that makes it well worth the effort. Samuel Adams Boston Lager® also uses only the finest of ingredients including two row barley, as well as German Noble aroma hops. The exclusive use of two row barley not only imparts a full, smooth body but also gives the beer a wide spectrum of malt flavor ranging from slightly sweet to caramel to slightly roasted. The Noble hops varieties, Hallertau Mittelfruh and Tettnang Tettnanger, add a wide range of floral, piney and citrus notes, which are present from the aroma, through the flavor, to the lingering smooth finish. We take great pride in the Noble hops used in our beers. They are hand selected by Jim Koch and our other brewers from the world’s oldest hops growing area. Among the world’s most expensive, they cost twenty times as much as other hops.

Always been one of my favorites. A good way to introduce friends to the world away from lite beers.

From a bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange, lasting tightly bubbled head, malty aroma with a hint of yeast, hints of hop bitterness punch through the malt. I like it a lot.

One of the first craft beers I ever had. Copper color, bready aroma, some bitterness in the taste. A pretty great lager.

thiesen (159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 21, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Balanced hops and malts with a significant caramel aroma to it. The hops are herbal the European way. Light amber with small white head and laces. Taste is like the aroma well balanced with a good punch and long aftertaste compared to other lagers. Medium mouthfeel and fizzyness. One of the best lagers I’ve had.

radzik5555 (198) - Gdynia, POLAND - APR 21, 2014
Butelka 0.33L. Złote, idealnie klarowne. Piana biała, skąpa. Aromat: miodowy, słodowy, lekko kwaskowy, lekko cytrusowy. W smaku dość płaskie, wytrawne, słody, chlebowe i całkiem spora jak na jasnego international lagera goryczka, do tego krótka. Całkiem przyzwoity lager, choć trochę estrowy i chlebowy co mi pasuje ale dziwne.

The perfect standard beer. Nice appearance, good flavor, pretty much the beer to judge all others by.

Drank from bottle. Nice crisp lager with a pale head. Amber color. Had it before but never rated it. Is a easy go to lager when out at a place with limited beer option.
